Hi-5 Kansas City
Hi-5 Kansas City offers ABA services to children with autism or related developmental disabilities in and around the Kansas City Metro Area. Contact us if you have any questions or would like to learn more about Hi-5 KC: ABA Treatment & Services and how we can help your child reach their fullest potential.
Hi-5 Kansas City was developed after working many years with a very special, unique, and complex young man. The services available within his community did not provide him the support needed to manage both his mental health symptoms and his Autism. Despite being well-intentioned, providers often developed interventions that took the form of punishment, negativity, and blame. This young man and his family not only needed but deserved, services that provided resources, education, advocacy, and therapy for both his behavioral and mental health needs.
Hi-5 KC was created to provide support for those individuals in our community diagnosed with Autism and living with symptoms of mental illness. Our mission is to provide comprehensive treatment, with quality and dependable services that are able to be integrated within a person’s life and community.
Hi-5 Kansas City believes that all people are entitled to their hopes and dreams and we’ve made it our mission to make them a reality. Through education, collaboration, advocacy, and therapeutic treatment, Hi-5 KC is dedicated to empowering individuals to live their life to the fullest.
Empowering individuals to live their life to the fullest
Rebecca Chapin, M.S.Ed., BCBA, LBA
Originally from Iowa, Rebecca attended the University of Iowa where she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. After working for several years, she decided to further her education at the University of Kansas. After enrolling in the Department of Special Education graduate program, Rebecca was offered the opportunity to participate in a grant-funded Autism program.
After receiving her Master’s degree in Special Education, Rebecca went on to work at the county mental health center as a Case Manager in the Children and Family division. During this time, she recognized that some of the families she was working with were in need of a more individualized approach to their treatment. Rebecca consistently advocated for the agency to develop a program that was focused more on providing services that were based on ABA concepts, which led to the development of the Positive Behavior Support Program at the Mental Health Center. It was during this time that Rebecca decided that ABA was her calling and that she would go back to school to later complete her Master’s Degree in Applied Behavior Analysis at Arizona State University.
Rebecca is a BCBA and Licensed Behavior Analyst, working at Hi-5 ABA with children and families in the Kansas City Metro Area. When she’s not working, Rebecca loves seeing live music, DIY projects, and attending Chiefs, Royals, and KU games with her friends and family.
